Students in Arkansas
The Department of
Laboratory Sciences offers a medical laboratory sciences distance education
curriculum. Pre-professional course work can
be taken at any regionally-accredited college or university. Students
who are admitted will complete a 17 month professional
curriculum. The first year of the program includes course work
(lectures and laboratory exercises) using distance education
technology. The first year student is required to complete
on-campus laboratory sessions mid-semester and during the final two weeks
of the fall and spring semesters. During the final six
months of the program, students complete an
internship at a program-approved clinical affiliation site.
This program is
designed for students who want to become a medical laboratory
professional but who cannot, for various reasons, relocate to attend the
first year of the traditional program in Little Rock. Medical
laboratory professionals are needed in nearly all areas of Arkansas
as well as in nearly all areas of the country.
